It's been a minute so lets get rig back to it....
Last month, apart from taking final exams, I travelled to the far off land of colorado for the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society (IBNS) Conference. The experience was enlightening. So far, majority of conferences I have attended (SFN, ABRCMS, HBCU_UP etc) have been large scaled. At times, I found them a bit overwhelming but I was always able to have a great time. IBNS on the other hand assumed a position on the opposite side of this spectrum. I think the conference averaged about 200 people this year... it probably would have been more had a certain volcano NOT erupted...but I digress...
The trip started out with a 3.5 hr flight to Denver and a 3.23 hour (Yes I kept count) shuttle ride up the mountains to the Sheraton SteamBoat Springs Resort. I definitely could have flown in closer but Im glad I didn't...The scenery was so beautiful, I could have stayed in the shuttle for a lot longer. That is if I had a bathroom and more food.
Anyway, the week (YES. The conference was a whole week!) was spent attending presentations, workshops and luncheons. We cracked jokes that only neuroscientist could ever understand, enjoyed a glass of wine at the poster presentations and socials and did just about everything your supposed to do at a conference, Network, Work, and have fun!
Here are a few pics from the perspective of my phone and Fujifilm...
